The sun is shining, summer is here and Amanda Holden just stepped out in another truly fabulous outfit! The ITV star wowed Instagram fans on Thursday morning with her funky blue, black and white printed kimono dress, which she teamed with red hot high heel shoes. Taking to Instagram, she wrote: "#Morning! Happy #4thjuly @thisisheart #breakfast #JamieandAmanda #glam @secretspauk my dress is old! #vintage?! Issa!". Issa is the brand which the Duchess of Cambridge put on the map - she wore their royal blue dress for her official engagement pictures back in 2010. Sadly the brand is no longer in existence - so you will never be able to buy Amanda's chic mini dress. Bad times! However there's a lot of incredible kimonos on the market that look similar - keep scrolling!

Talking about the ITV star's ever-changing look, Kyle said: "I would describe Amanda's style as fresh, summery, elegant. She proves you can still look chic and be comfortable at the same time. Our purpose is to inspire every day women to re create these looks from the high street. We love Zara, Arket, Reiss and French Connection."
